The Media

Just read espn bottom ticker - LeBron Jame's says "If I wanted to, I could lead the league in scoring, but that's not my job here,".

Idk whats worse, the fact that ESPN would put that on the ticker like it belongs with scores, injuries, trades, etc., or the idea that there are people out there that would argue what he said (cause he easily could do that), or have a problem with him saying something like that. I can understand not finding this type of declaration very tasteful, but when it comes down to it, that's the mindset a professional competitor needs to have, I would have a problem if he DIDN'T feel that way.

ESPN, where ratings come before sports

I agree...

Nothing wrong with that... Nobody had a problem when Kobe said he can score 40 every night...

The whole purpose of him

The whole purpose of him going to Miami was to win a title, not become a scoring champ.

He's right.

He's right. But if Durant had Rondo instead of Westbrook, Lebron has no shot.

There are alot of guys, that

There are alot of guys, that in the right spot, could lead the league in scoring.

Dwight Howard could with a coach that made him the focal point of the team and knew how to get him the ball.
When Lebron loses Wade, he will lead the league in scoring.. He doenst want to step on toes right now..
Melo could if he was on a team full of shooters where he was the only guy that could create.
Westbrook could if he played for the Magic right now.
I think Kobe could still do it with the right people around him.

Dwight barely avg over 20 in

Dwight barely avg over 20 in the perfect system for him in Orlando. His LA experiment only bolsters the argument that his offensive game is wackness

Kyle Korver

I think a guy like Kyle Korver could lead the league in scoring if he had a coach he wasn't particularly concerned about winning. I think it would only take him, oh, 25 30-footers to get 30 points. Run down, pass the ball to Korver at the logo, have him shoot an open, if lengthy, three...

Like i on a thread I started,

Like i said on a thread I started, if Lebron strived to average a triple double he could, it just wouldn't translate to his best 'winning basketball'

How would getting 10+ assists

How would getting 10+ assists a game not translate to winning games?

At this point I just want to

At this point I just want to see Durant and Lebron play one on one. Durant is clearly the better shooter and appears to be more of a natural scorer but Lebrons physicality would most likely prevail.

Both of them are incredibly efficient players but they do it in different ways..it is basically a matter of preference when deciding who the best scorer in the league is.
